Royal® Building Products Unveils Royal Project Estimator at International Builders’ Show

Royal® Building Products announced today that it is unveiling the Royal Project Estimator app for professionals at the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.

Royal’s new user-friendly app helps siding professionals streamline their business, eliminate waste, maximize profitability and improve customer service. Available to download on both Apple and Android devices in the spring of 2014, the Royal Project Estimator allows professionals to store data for siding projects. The intuitive interface features detailed checklists for measuring siding projects, and it helps professionals create accurate, on-the-spot estimates that can easily be shared with homeowners.

“The Royal Project Estimator is an ideal solution for builders who want to stay organized and improve the estimation process,” says Simon Bates, vice president and general manager of Exteriors, Trim and Distribution for Royal Building Products. “This new technology will become as vital to a contractor’s siding business as the tools for the job itself.”

Within each project dashboard, siding professionals can log measurements, establish measurement groups and calculate costs for all aspects of the job including:

  • Siding
  • Soffits and ceilings
  • Siding accessories
  • Gutters and downspouts
  • Additional costs and incidentals

The app is pre-loaded with all products by Royal Building Products, including Celect® Cellular Exteriors, and Exterior Portfolio® - a Royal Building Products brand. Once project measurements are entered and the product is selected, professionals can set the pricing and publish two estimates: a line-itemed estimate that can be emailed directly to the homeowner and a more detailed estimate for the professional to keep on file. The Royal Project Estimator conveniently links measurement groups so that if the homeowner wishes to swap out products, the re-estimation process is quick and easy.

The Royal Project Estimator stores all projects remotely, allowing siding professionals to access jobs and estimates from other devices. The tool also builds in a waste percentage, which is customizable, and it stores all pricing and waste percentages from previous jobs.
